Convert CMOD Files to OBJ?

Post #1by CM1215 » 30.09.2017, 22:59

Hello,

I need to convert a CMOD file to .obj format, but haven't been able to find a way to do so. I have seen many converters that can convert to CMOD, but there are very few options when it comes to converting from CMOD. Does anybody know of a way to do this?

Thanks for the link.

I don't really understand why is it impossible to have a free cmod->obj converter when cmodview can open obj files and saves them in cmod format...

Also cmod->3ds conversion should be possible if there is a working 3ds->cmod conversion utility...

Thank you very much.

I found that same program, but was unable to use it to its full potential. On exporting, the program ruins the model by deleting every 5th polygon, which fills it with holes, all because I don't have a registrated version of the program, which costs $50 (which is a lot). To get the program to work properly, I would either have to spend $50, or use a hacked version of the program.

Anywho, thanks for the model. I will get to working on it as soon as possible.

I have a request for anyone with the software capable of doing this:

Can someone convert the attached CMOD file to an OBJ file?

Note: The original model is from the Motherlode...I have just merged the meshes into a single one.
